Mourinho never gets hired?

23 posts in this topic

It's a little bit weird; he doesn't even get mentioned on any manager shortlist. And I'm running the top 6 leagues in europe. It's 2011 and all the big clubs have changed their manager at least once. Mourinho was never approached...

Same in mine and his stats are fantastic, lots of 20s.

Maybe he's too expensive?

Just tried to get him as my assistant manager but no dice. It's 2010 in the game - surely he must have spent his Chelsea wad by now?

Same thing in my game, except it's Sir Alex Ferguson. Ever since I started with Man Utd in the first season, he hasn't joined another team, and it's like 2014.

Ally Mcoist is the same and Roy Keane got sacked from Sunderland and hasn't found a job.

Quite odd. But I can understand about Ferguson.

On my last 3 games he is always appointed England boss after a bad Euro 08 by McClaren.

I got SAF sacked by winning the EPL with Liverpool in 2008 and beating Man U 4-1 at OT icon_wink.gif

After that he didn't take another job. But I can understand that because he's retirement age.

McLaren is still England boss in 2010 in my game. Maybe Mourinho's waiting for that job. He'll be disappointed - they're obviously going to offer it to me instead icon_smile.gif

I have seen this alot too. I think with Ferguson its coded so he retires at the end of 2008/9 season, but Jose never gets hired from what I have seen. Its odd because Benitez, Rijkaard, Van Basten, Ancelotti and mancini all seem to move quite often and there reps / wages are on a par with the special one

I wonder if its a glitch caused by the late replacement of Mourinho with Avram Grant (who starts as Chelsea manager rather than coming in after the first couple of games)

I have never ever had a sacked\available manager take up the post of assistant. I understand that certain people would like mourinho would probably think themselves too good to be an assistant but surely they would be a few that would be desperate to get back into the game that they would take a job as an assistant? It has always been like this in FM and I have been playing since cm01/02 and cant ever recall a manager taking the job of assistant. I think this is something that should definitely be modified in the game.

He's really got Shevchenko and Ballack on his dislike list!!?? WOW

A point about the dislike list?

Where does the info come from, the actual person?

If so, did Mourinho say he didnt like Shevchenko and Ballack?

Mourinho took over at Real Madrid within 6 months in my game with Liverpool. Still couldn't help them win in Europe, but still has his job 4 years on!

He took over Portugal in my game too, in 2008 (I took over Chelsea back in 2006

IRL he also talked a lot about how he wants to be Portugal's manager

I remember on I think it was FM05 (although it may have been the last CM) that it was far too easy to get managers to become assistants. As soon as a good manager had been out of work for about a year or longer, they would jump at the opportunity to be an assistant. I had someone like Rafa Benitez as my assistant in one of those games!

Now though I do agree that it's gone a bit too far the other way; it's nigh on impossible to do it.
